Eating at Century Grand is submitting to a sublimely chaotic dining experience that has no equal in greater Phoenix. The food menu — part printed and in your hands, part offered via a dim sum cart that trundles around the cocktail-blurred dining room — features remixes of 1920s-inspired American dishes using hyperseasonal produce like persimmons, Buddha’s hand, and heirloom radishes. Sacha Levine, a wildly creative chef, oversees the kitchen. Highlights include a large-format radicchio salad that comes with a steak knife, an impossibly tender beef cheek Wellington, and a crab Rangoon that morphs with the seasons. You eye the cart. You pick what you want. Plates amass on your table. And don’t miss the deep, erudite list of cocktails and natural wines, or the 500-bottle whisk(e)y shop, The Grey Hen. Also: The drinking experience on the simulated train car ride, Platform 18, offers a separate drinks-and-dessert journey, one as singular as the food in Century Grand’s main dining room.
